Visitors to our websites and general communications.
When someone visits our website, we may collect standard internet logging information that details visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to discover information such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. Due to legal regulations, we do collect some personally identifiable information but this data is protected and we do not share information unless required by law or based on legitimate interest reasons. We also do need to collect personal information through our services (such as including phone/fax/email/messaging) which may be required for customer management.
This section further details of what to expect when BeamWave Technologies collects personal information. It applies (but not limited to) information we collect about:
When you call BeamWave Technologies, we may collect Calling Line Identification (CLI) information. We use this information to help improve its efficiency and effectiveness. The CLI data is stored in a secure system.
We may record phone calls for training and monitoring purposes. The recordings are stored in a secure system.
When we receive a complaint from a person we create a file containing the details of the complaint. This normally contains the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint.
We will only use the personal information we collect to process the complaint and to check on the level of service we provide. We do compile and publish statistics showing information like the number of complaints we receive, but not in a form which identifies anyone.
We may have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis.
We will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with our retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for a limited period before closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the ‘need to know’ principle.
Similarly, where enquiries are submitted to us we will use the information supplied to us (as well as any relevant information from or systems) to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues and to check on the level of service we provide.
If we take enforcement action against someone, we may publish the identity of the defendant in our Annual Report or elsewhere. Usually, we do not identify any complainants unless the details have already been made public.
In many circumstances, we will not disclose personal data without consent. However, when we investigate a complaint, for example, we will need to share personal information with the organisation concerned and with other relevant bodies.
BeamWave Technologies offers various services to its customers and potential customers. For example, we send out publications and distribute an electronic newsletter. We may use a third party’s to deal with some publication requests, but they are only allowed to use the information to send out the publications, not for their own use. For example, contractors which are used for e-newsletters are MailChimp and Zoho.
We have to hold the details of the people who have requested the service in order to provide it. However, we only use these details to provide the service the person has requested and for other closely related purposes. For example, we might use information about people who have requested a publication to carry out a survey to find out if they are happy with the level of service they received. When people do subscribe to our services but change their mind later, they can cancel their customer account at any time and are given an easy way of doing this by contacting our customer services dept via the website contact us page.
BeamWave Technologies tries to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. If we do hold information about you we will:
